DescriptionIn 1948, a dieback of sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua L.) was first observed and reported at College Park, Md. Since then, surveys made from Maryland southward have shown that the dieback, now termed sweetgum blight, has increased in both distribution and severity and now occurs throughout much of the species range. No pathogenic organism has been found to be associated with this blight.
